Hello, I recently purchased a Glowfish tank kit for my young nephew as well as a few fish and I noticed a great difference in color from the normal lighting to the blue LED lights and I was wondering if anyone uses these LEDs or a blacklight for thier chams and if there is a notable difference in thier coloration? Are there any health issues by using these light sources?

The glofish "glow" due to the black light leds. So since chams cant phosphor They shouldnt appear different if you are only adding to the invisible color spectrum. The other leds are just to make the fish "pop" and simulate light filtered through several feet of water.

The cham wont be hurt by the black light/uva leds, but i wouldnt recommend it since it might change his mood due to the unnatural light spectrum.
